Keynote: Fire Someone, Anyone, Just Make Someone Pay

[ #15329 ]
I'm stumbling around the internet, and somehow I end up looking at a page about the Pro version of the free internet health report. So I click on the thumbnail to see how much better it would be if I paid. I'm starting to read the text and the window closes. Ok, I figure it's some kind of Mozilla bug. So I try it again. Again, halfway through looking at the pretty picture it closes.

So I open it again and this time I pull up a view source window. Aha! There it is:

<body onLoad="setTimeout(window.close, 9000)" ...

I could only stare in dumb disbelief. Some idiot decided that the screenshot should close in 9 seconds. Unreal. Someone really should get fired for that. I can't believe anyone would buy their product after experiencing this level of idiocy!
